Lucifer in harness; American meter, metaphor, and diction by Edwin S Fussell( )

For nearly two hundred years the rebellious American poet has been reluctantly harnessed to the English language and literary tradition. In a triptych of essays, Edwin Fussell attempts ""to explore the fundamental dilemma of American poetry as it appears in the three crucial fields of meter, metaphor, and poetic diction, the three crucial fields of American poetry (taken as a whole) most studiously avoided by American scholars, but not, as I intend to show, by American poets."" Writing in a provocative critical style attuned to the poets he discusses, Edwin Fussell explores the dilemma of t

American literature; essays and opinions by Cesare Pavese( Book )

12 editions published between 1970 and 2017 in English and held by 765 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Cesare Pavese (1908-1950) was the leading Italian scholar of American literature of the generation that came to maturity under Mussolini. He was not only an acute and wide-ranging literary critic, but also a sensitive poet and novelist. In addition, he was a prodigious translator. In collaboration with Elio Vittorini, he translated and brought to the attention of the Italian public the works of many important American writers. American literature helped to give direction to Pavese's creative work and was a resource for his personal literary campaign against Fascism. Pavese was a non-academic critic, though far less anti - academic than D.H. Lawrence. His first purpose was to use American literature to subvert Italian literature, but beyond that there were a number of issues on which he disagreed with standard American criticism. When he does, his wild, original energy of discovery can trigger a welcome change of focus for our views of American writing. Pavese never visited or lived in America; it was for him a foreign country, although a shifting and sliding special case. He had no stake in its sectional chauvinisms. He had a vital stake in its whole literature because, as his communications to Vittorini make clear, he had a stake in the literature of the whole world. For a while, America seemed to him the probable center of that whole. This was the center where things were happening in the world of the mind, and where the future was being born and licked into shape. Paveses's writings about American literature still offer original and unsparing insights."--Provided by publisher
The French side of Henry James by Edwin S Fussell( Book )

7 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Catholic side of Henry James by Edwin S Fussell( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 2008 in English and Undetermined and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the first part of the book, Fussell discusses the influence of James' Catholic friends like John La Farge; and the ambivalent attitudes toward Catholic sensibilities in writers like Cooper and Emerson and Hawthorne, James' more or less immediate predecessors on the literary scene, as well as in his contemporaries like Mark Twain and Howells. Fussell then examines the beginnings of Catholic fiction in America and the rapidly growing number of Catholics in the population and in the reading audience for fiction. He claims that the religious mix in the literary scene provided James with a commercial opportunity to explore his penchant for the Protestant-Catholic theme. The rest of the book explores the presentation of Catholics and of Catholicism in James' fiction, using criticism, letters, and notebooks to illuminate the fiction. Fussell's examination ranges from James' early reviews of religious books for the Nation and early tales like "De Grey: A Romance" through much of the canon, along the way reexamining James' overlooked play Guy Domville and climaxing with a magnificent reading of The Golden Bowl, convincingly demonstrating James' involvement with Catholic themes."--Jacket
